                 ORDER AND OPINION REMANDING PROCEEDING ON APPEAL

        On April 10,  1986,  the  above-named  petitioner  filed  an  appeal
        against an order issued on April 3, 1986, effective April 11,  1984,
        by the Rent Administrator of the Rent Office located at Gertz Plaza, 
        Jamaica, New York, concerning the housing accommodations known as 18 
        Mott Street, New York, New York, Apartment 3-R.

        In the petition, the tenant avers that he  was  never  provided  any
        notification nor provided the opportunity  to  address  the  owner's
        application for rent increases based on the  installation  of  major
        capital improvements.

        This appeal has been considered in conformity  with  the  applicable
        provisions of Chapter 403 of the Law of 1983 (Omnibus Housing Act of 
        1983), as amended, and of the applicable rent law  and  regulations,
        but, in the opinion of the Commissioner, the record is not  adequate
        to form the basis for a proper determination of the issues  in  this
        proceeding.  The proceeding must therefore be remanded to  the  Rent
        Administrator for further consideration.

        THEREFORE, in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Laws of 
        1983 as amended  by  Chapter  102,  Laws  of  1984  and  Operational
        Bulletin 84-1, it is

        ORDERED, that this appeal be and the same hereby is granted  to  the
        extent of remanding this proceeding to the  Rent  Administrator  for
        further processing in accordance with this Order and  Opinion.   The
        order and determination of the Rent Administrator  remains  in  full
        force and effect until a new order is issued upon remand.

        ISSUED:



                                                                      
                                        ELLIOT SANDER
                                        Deputy Commissioner
